Woo hoo!! I made it. . . .my first 80 mile week is in the books.
Here’s how my week went down:
AM – 8 miles (track workout: 4 x 1600 meters)
PM – 4 mile run
10 mile run (+ 45 minutes weight lifting—arms and legs)
AM – 11 miles (8 miles at marathon pace)
PM – 4 miles
9 miles (+ 45 minutes weight lifting—arms and legs)
20 miles (which included a 10K race)
Total: 80 miles
(These are the shirts from the Alaska 10K Classic yesterday.)
I felt good throughout the week, but racing a 10K on Saturday and then completing a long run until I got to 20 miles did me in yesterday. I took this morning’s 7-miler nice and easy, so hopefully I will be able to recovery and get back at it tomorrow.
I’m kind of an over-achiever, so as much as I’m excited about reaching 80 miles this week, now I have make a new goal for myself—running 90 miles! And since 80 miles went well this past week, I figure why not shoot for 90 this week. Wish me luck! I’ll be checking in periodically to let you know how it’s going.
Be good to me legs. . . . .
